    Hi Guys,

    I was just wondering if anyone on this forum has changed their orange indicator bulbs to chrome 1s that flash orange? If so which pin does it have?

    No probs - they're not that bad in the flesh (I have a set). Got them on Ebay for £8.99. Either that or you're looking at £22.52 + VAT for a set of PIAA equivalents.....

    I have bought other bulbs from Ebay which were all chrome, but you could hardly see the indicator flashing - I'd much rather have a subtle chrome look rather than a dent in the car and insurance claim where someone couldn't see my indicator bulb flashing......

    Nathan,

    Think we've had discussions about our new arrivals before LOL :)

    My car is built and last I heard it was on a ship on its way over to the UK. It's been a long wait as I ordered 25th Sept...

    Jon is it hard to replace the bulbs? Is it pop bonnet jobby? Or underneath the car jobby? Also, have you got any pictures of any A3 with clear indicator bulbs?

    I'll let you know when I get the car! Might need small hands looking at other posts, but should be all possible via the bonnet.

    Pretty certain there are some pics on here with clear bulbs fitted - I'll certainly post pics of mine when they're fitted.
